Friday Fics Fix - Magical-Shenanigans-Related Food Poisoning


'John’s gotten sick in plenty of bars, but he’s almost sure that this is the first time alcohol hasn’t been involved.'

Ah, John Constantine.

A moody, broody, British Bisexual warlock and master of the occult, who's a character in my beloved Arrowverse show Legends of Tomorrow? And is played by a Welsh actor (Matt Ryan)?

Yeah, if you know me at all, you know that I had zero chance to resist.

John Constantine (Matt Ryan): Sorry.

(Fandom notes:

Arrowverse = the CW's DC shows. They've tried to rename it the CWverse, but it's the Arrowverse.)

So I love Constantine.

I love the comics. I love the character. I even loved the Keanu Reeves movie, which has something of a mixed reception amongst fans.

This week's fic is a DC's Legends of Tomorrow fic in which John Constantine has magical-shenanigans-related food poisoning.

It's shameless whump and hurt/comfort with an important message about letting other people help you.

Because fanfiction tells me what I need to hear 😅 (as does the Arrowverse generally.)

(Fandom notes:

Whump - where all the bad stuff happens to a particular character/some particular characters.

Hurt/Comfort - fics where a character gets hurt and is comforted/taken care of by other characters; also called h/c)

Content Warnings for this one, dearest nerdlets:

- ingesting really gross things

- vomiting a lot

- brief general violence

- self-worth issues

- blood

References to:

- alcohol and alcohol abuse

- child abuse/neglect

- cancer

- being hospitalised for mental health reasons

As always, I might've forgotten something, so please take care!

This week's fic then, is:
